This route was defined in 1971.
This route is part of the De Anza National Historic Trail.
South of Mission Road in Fort Hunter Liggett G14 has scenic placards as
far south as Nacimiento Lake. The first 25 mile or so southbound of G14 on
Jolon Road which traverses a lot of Salinas Valley before entering the
outskirts of the Santa Lucia Range upon entering Fort Hunter Liggett.
Really there isn't too much exciting until Mission Road where the signage
for the De Anza Historic Trail picks up. Essentially all of G14
technically is on the De Anza Historic Trail but the signage north of Fort
Hunter Liggett is non-existent. Basically the route is the signed on the
trail that Spanish Soldiers took in 1775 to 1776 to found a mission up in
San Francisco. At Lockwood G14 turns south on Interlake Road while Jolon
Road picks up G18. From G18, G14 is signed as a Scenic Route with the
appropriate placard signage. South to Nacimiento Lake Drive G14 gains a
lot of elevation and has some crazy grades in addition to having decent
overviews of Lake Nacimiento to the south with Lake San Antonio the north.
On the ridge above the lakes is the boundary for SLO County. At Lake
Nacimiento Lake Drive G14 meets G19 and follows said road south to Lake
Nacimiento and over Nacimiento Dam. The Nacimiento Dam is an earthen dam
that was completed in 1957 and impounds an 18 mile long reservoir on the
Nacimiento River. Lake Nacimiento Lake Road has some pretty steep grades,
some as much as 10% before leveling out near Chimney Rock Road and a
formation of the same name. G14 the rest of the way to US 101 in Paso
Robles is pretty tame and there was a decent G14 "End" even to be had at
the southern terminus. Note that there was a recent signage error that
signed the route on US 101 as 18.
